Sisters of the Yam

Sisters of the Yam is a closed space for black identifying Smithies (those descending from the African diaspora). It was created by Fulani Oghoghome '17J, a student working on a project concerning themes around black womanhood, wellness, and vulnerability who saw a lack of spaces on campus for intentional reflection and healing at Smith. This space allows for writing, meditation, listening, self reflection and collective organizing to be done. Also events scheduled involving outside facilitation will be based in holistic and alternative healing and mental wellness.

Smith College Jewish Community (SCJC)

Smith College Jewish Community endeavors to address the needs of Jewish students on campus and to encourage a sense of community between them by being pluralistic, welcoming, and inclusive. It provides opportunities to explore and celebrate Judaism and Jewish culture, while enriching the lives of the Smith community. Smith College Jewish Community provides religious services, maintains a kosher kitchen, and sponsors educational events relating to Jewish issues.
